I wanted to share with everyone some of the key pieces in my suitcase from Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style that I brought with me to Europe.
This necklace was probably one of my favorite pieces of the Summer Box. Brave Collection has beautiful pieces and I loved that this compass necklace was included. As you can see from the fact that there is a travel tab on my blog and all of the pictures that have been up on my Instagram, traveling is a part of me. The compass necklace felt like a personal touch for all of the subscribers who love to travel, especially during the summer when a lot of people have the opportunity to. I wore it every day while I was away. I do not know why I brought other necklaces with me.
You guys saw from every post that I put up while I was traveling, that this Tribe Alive bag was front and center. The bag is actually from the Spring Box of Style and is considered a weekender bag on Tribe Alive’s website. This bag came in handy so much while I was traveling. While walking around the different cities/beaches, I was able to put my camera, necessities, a water bottle (see below), and various small purchases in it. When going from city to city, I used it as almost another suitcase; this bag held four sandals, my wallet, passport, small brush, and several small toiletries. Talk about a bag that is versatile! Not to mention, I love the print!
This hat did not come with me on the trip because I brought my other hat. I just did not want to bring two hats with me. However, I have worn this hat down the shore multiple times and love the pom pom detail!
When receiving my Box of Style, it was a no-brainer that this kimono from Helena Quinn was going to be coming with me to Europe. I styled it while in LBI walking around Bay Village and at the beach in this post. As I’m writing this post, I realized I never posted the pictures from our day at Fish Shack in Ibiza which is where this shot is from (that will come soon). The kimono was the perfect to throw over my swimsuit and pair with shorts. Because it is lightweight, it was not uncomfortable to wear in the heat, which is always a plus for me.
I brought these earrings as well and wore them whenever we went out at night. I love the fact that they can be worn two different ways: with or without the hoop. If you’re feeling daring, you can wear one earring with the hoop and the other without! These earrings just add a classy edge to your outfit.
Another cover-up I brought was this Michael Stars caftan from last year’s Summer Box of Style. For some reason, I did not get a picture in it while on the beach. I love the colors on this and the fact that I can still wear it even though it is from last year’s box.
The water is Rome is probably the best I have ever tasted and there is always a fountain that you can fill your water bottle up in. That was exactly why I packed this water bottle from BKR which came in the Spring Box of Style. I brought it with me to the beach in Montepaone Lido too. During the last couple of months, I used this water bottle for school because it is glass and I could put my essential oils in there; I like using either the lemon or citrus oil from Young Living and you can only put the oils in glass or aluminum water bottles.
I wanted to write this post because every item from the boxes I have received, I have used and extensively. Not to mention, some of these pieces are pricey (hi Tribe Alive bag!) and I would not have purchased that on my own. I spend $100 for the box and I get almost $1000 worth of stuff and pieces that I never would purchase on my own. If you are on the fence about trying a box, I highly recommend it. I am beyond excited for the Fall box because in it is a bag by Gigi New York. I have been itching to purchase a bag from them but have yet to pull the trigger because the bags are pricey. Take a look at the preview video for yourself and see what you think!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
